(Not so) risky business!

Well, it’s not really a infographic, but The Mail Online have published an interesting article on;  How Tom Cruise’s impressive-looking stunts are made easier than they seem.

And the article features a picture with infographic features. But I’d also recomend you to read the story.

 

Clinging on for dear life, Tom Cruise desperately holds on to a car bonnet as Cameron Diaz drives it down the street at breakneck speed… at least that’s what the director wants you to think.

But this is a stunt sequence from their action-comedy Wichita, where nothing is quite what it seems.

Look below at our more loosely cropped picture and you will see the bigger picture.

Although Ms Diaz is behind the wheel of the black Cadillac, this is just a dummy car covering the actual low-lying vehicle.

Peering out underneath Tom’s flailing legs is the real stunt driver wearing a crash helmet and all around them are lights, cameras and a host of gadgets and film tools.

 

Read the rest of the article and check out the images for how the stunt was done over at The Mail Online.
